NCAA final: Duke having trouble shaking Butler down the stretch

Duke forward Kyle Singler hit a jumper from the wing to give the Blue Devils a 58-55 lead, then the teams traded possessions until Nolan Thomas sank two free throws to give Duke a 60-55 lead with 3:16 left in the game.

Each team, which has lived on defense and making pressure shots, will be tested down the stretch at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
